I got it from a friend who had purchased it new in 1996. Most of the time it has hung on the wall, it was driven not more than 70 km and even on the road.

Best regards

@ Dynatechrider: Wow, that Altitude is amazing! Very nice build indeed and looks in mint condition too...

This is my new '98 Pipeline, almost as recently purchased. I have just completed building it up with the bits and pieces that were missing so it can be looked at as whole bike. Now I will be looking for a direction to co-ordinate the parts a little more... as it is still a somewhat random mixture. Any suggestions welcome!
Currently: Z1's, Race Face LP cranks, XTR RD, XT FD, 8 speed shifters, Hope brakes and hubs, Chris King headset, Ringle seatpost, Kore stem and skewers, Syntace Vector DH bars, Flite Earth edition. The frame, fork, silver hubs and hope brakes will remain - everything else I am open to suggestions and try variations ;-)

A Tange Ultimate Superlight seat tube sticker, but do I see the signs of an Ultimate Ultrastrong down tube there Roy? Combined with a short fork, would I be correct in dating it to 92 or possibly 93?
